I had found a website somewhere along the line of looking for new sodas that had a whole load of root beer extracts from Pennsylvania Amish country. I am guessing/assuming that this is mainly due to the popularity of home brewing soda among the Amish, still to this day. this is worth noting because most of the time when I get extracts or syrups, i have to order them one at a time directly from the manufacturer. so getting four different brands or whatever from one place is pretty cool and unique.
this one only has instructions for making the whole bottle which involves 8 cups of sugar and 5 gallons of water. now, i do have some big buckets so i could conceivable do that, i don’t want to. mainly since i just want one bottle or glass. so i scaled it down as best i could and made less.
the taste came out a little bit different than the expected flavor. there is a stronger herbal/root taste in there. something deep and robust that I am unable to place. maybe it is extra sassafras. strangely, there are no flavorings in the ingredients at all. so I have no clue what gives it any sort of flavor. of course they left something off that list. whatever. i do enjoy the different taste here, it works. it isn’t amazing but of the extracts i’ve had lately, it is one of the better ones.
Ingredients:caramel color, water, propylene glycol, acacia gum, sugar syrup, citric acid, sodium benzoate
